Details:The Community Coalition for Social Justice and Main Street Morgantown are sponsoring this annual event on January 15th at 2:00 p.m. at the Metropolitan Theatre, 369 High Street, Morgantown. Because we anticipate that many events recognizing the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's assassination in 1968 will focus on his career and adult life, we will focus on the experiences of his boyhood that made him the man he became.



There will be music in the lobby before the event. Mayor Bill Kawecki will welcome the audience. The Flying Colors, Morgantown Community Orchestra, Mylan Park Elementary School Choir, and Morgantown Children’s Choir will perform, and the winners of the NAACP-Greater St. Paul AME Church Multimedia Essay Contest will share their essays. Janis-Rozena Peri will sing one of Dr. King’s favorite songs, “If I Can Help Someone,” and Jeremy Thomas will be reading a story about Dr. King as a boy. Look for posters by art students from St. Francis Central Catholic School in downtown businesses to promote the event.



CCSJ will also have social justice-themed bumper stickers and buttons for sale. The League of Women Voters and Morgantown Human Rights Commission will have information tables in the lobby, and the League will have information available about the new West Virginia voter i.d. law that will then be in effect.



Admission is free, but CCSJ asks that those attending bring donations for the Scott’s Run Settlement House Backpack Feeding Program that provides food for area school children over the weekend, which now serves 839 children at nine schools in Monongalia County, Sample foods needed are individual servings of graham crackers, animal crackers, cereal boxes, fruit snacks, Jell-O, ravioli soup, and applesauce. A link to a complete list and more information is available at srsh-org.doodlekit.com/home/backpack_snack_program.

CCSJ provides this event with financial support from the City of Morgantown and Rachel Wood of Virtus Wealth Solutions.
